    Full text link
    The light cone QCD sum rules are derived for ωNN\omega NN vector and tensor couplings simultaneously. The vacuum gluon field contribution is taken into account. Our results are gω=(18±8),κω=(0.8±0.4)g_\omega =(18\pm 8), \kappa_\omega=(0.8\pm 0.4).Comment: To appear in Phys. Rev. C (Brief Report

    Y(4143) is probably a molecular partner of Y(3930)

    Full text link
    After discussing the various possible interpretations of the Y(4143) signal observed by the CDF collaboration in the J/ΟˆΟ•J/\psi \phi mode, we tend to conclude that Y(4143) is probably a Dsβˆ—DΛ‰sβˆ—D_s^\ast {\bar D}_s^\ast molecular state with JPC=0++J^{PC}=0^{++} or 2++2^{++} while Y(3930) is its Dβˆ—DΛ‰βˆ—D^\ast {\bar D}^\ast molecular partner as predicted in our previous work (arXiv:0808.0073). Both the hidden-charm and open charm two-body decays occur through the rescattering of the vector components within the molecular states while the three- and four-body open charm decay modes are forbidden kinematically. Hence their widths are narrow naturally. CDF, Babar and Belle collaborations may have discovered heavy molecular states already. We urge experimentalists to measure their quantum numbers and explore their radiative decay modes in the future.Comment: 6 pages, 1 table, 4 figure

    Spin-1 charmonium-like states in QCD sum rule

    Full text link
    We study the possible spin-1 charmonium-like states by using QCD sum rule approach. We calculate the two-point correlation functions for all the local form tetraquark interpolating currents with JPC=1βˆ’βˆ’,1βˆ’+,1++J^{PC}=1^{--}, 1^{-+}, 1^{++} and 1+βˆ’1^{+-} and extract the masses of the tetraquark charmonium-like states. The mass of the 1βˆ’βˆ’1^{--} qcqΛ‰cΛ‰qc\bar q\bar c state is 4.6∼4.74.6\sim4.7 GeV, which implies a possible tetraquark interpretation for Y(4660) meson. The masses for both the 1++1^{++} qcqΛ‰cΛ‰qc\bar q\bar c and scsΛ‰cΛ‰sc\bar s\bar c states are 4.0∼4.24.0\sim 4.2 GeV, which is slightly above the mass of X(3872). For the 1βˆ’+1^{-+} and 1+βˆ’1^{+-} qcqΛ‰cΛ‰qc\bar q\bar c states, the extracted masses are 4.5∼4.74.5\sim4.7 GeV and 4.0∼4.24.0\sim 4.2 GeV respectively.Comment: 7 pages, 2 figures. arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:1010.339

    Isospin breaking, coupled-channel effects, and X(3872)

    Full text link
    We re-investigate the possibility of X(3872) as a DDΛ‰βˆ—D\bar{D}^* molecule with JPC=1++J^{PC}=1^{++} within the framework of both the one-pion-exchange (OPE) model and the one-boson-exchange (OBE) model. After careful treatment of the S-D wave mixing, the mass difference between the neutral and charged D(Dβˆ—)D(D^*) mesons and the coupling of the D(Dβˆ—)D(D^*) pair to Dβˆ—DΛ‰βˆ—D^*\bar{D}^*, a loosely bound molecular state X(3872) emerges quite naturally with large isospin violation in its flavor wave function. For example, the isovector component is 26.24% if the binding energy is 0.30 MeV, where the isospin breaking effect is amplified by the tiny binding energy. After taking into account the phase space difference and assuming the 3Ο€3\pi and 2Ο€2\pi come from a virtual omega and rho meson respectively, we obtain the ratio of these two hidden-charm decay modes: B(X(3872)β†’Ο€+Ο€βˆ’Ο€0J/ψ)/B(X(3872)β†’Ο€+Ο€βˆ’J/ψ)=0.42\mathcal{B}(X(3872)\rightarrow \pi^+\pi^-\pi^0 J/\psi)/\mathcal{B}(X(3872)\rightarrow \pi^+\pi^- J/\psi)=0.42 for the binding energy being 0.3 MeV, which is consistent with the experimental value.Comment: published in Phys.

    Possible JPC=0βˆ’βˆ’J^{PC} = 0^{--} Charmonium-like State

    Full text link
    We study the possible charmonium-like states with JPC=0βˆ’βˆ’,0βˆ’+J^{PC}=0^{--}, 0^{-+} using the tetraquark interpolating currents with the QCD sum rules approach. The extracted masses are around 4.5 GeV for the 0βˆ’βˆ’0^{--} charmonium-like states and 4.6 GeV for the 0βˆ’+0^{-+} charmonium-like states while their bottomonium-like analogues lie around 10.6 GeV. We also discuss the possible decay, production and the experiment search of the 0βˆ’βˆ’0^{--} charmonium-like state.Comment: 12 pages, 10 figures, 3 table

    The electromagnetic decays of the charmed and bottom baryons in chiral perturbation theory

    Full text link
    We have investigated the electromagnetic decays of the antitriplet and sextet charmed baryon systems with JP=12+,32+J^P= \frac{1}{2}^+, \frac{3}{2}^+ in the framework of the heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. We first construct the chiral Lagrangians at O(p2)O(p^2) and O(p3)O(p^3). Then we calculate the electromagnetic (EM) decay amplitudes of the charmed baryon systems up to O(p3)O(p^3). With the help of the quark model, we estimate the low energy constants. The numerical results of the EM decay widths show good convergence of the chiral expansion. We notice that the two neutral EM decay processes Ξcβ€²0β†’Ξ³+Ξc0\Xi_c'^0\rightarrow\gamma+\Xi_c^0 and Ξcβˆ—β€²0β†’Ξ³+Ξc0{\Xi_c^*}'^0\rightarrow\gamma+\Xi_c^0 are strongly suppressed by the SU(3) U-spin flavor symmetry. With the same formalism, we also estimate the EM decay widths of the bottomed baryons. The EM decay widths of the heavy baryons may be measured at facilities such as LHCb and JPARC. The explicit chiral structures of the heavy baryon decay amplitudes derived in this work may be useful to the possible chiral extrapolations of the future lattice simulations of these EM decay amplitudes

    Since LEPS collaboration reported the first evidence of Θ+\Theta^+ pentaquark in early 2003, eleven other experimental groups have confirmed this exotic state while many other groups didn't see any signal. If this state is further established by future high statistical experiments, its discovery shall be one of the most important events in hadron physics for the past three decades. This exotic baryon with such a low mass and so narrow a width imposes a big challenge to hadron theorists. Up to now, there have appeared more than two hundred theoretical papers trying to interpret this charming state. I will review some important theoretical developments on pentaquarks based on my biased personal views.Comment: Review Commissioned by International Journal of Modern Physics
